PUEBLO BONITO PACIFICA: CABO SAN LUCAS

SO excited to share with you guys my recent stay at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica in Los Cabos Mexico with my blogging/real life bestie, Torey from Torey's Treasures. It's a long one, but I promise you will want to read about every single detail! Happy scrolling.

After a quick flight from Seattle and an easy shuttle from the airport, we arrived at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica. We were greeted with cherry mojitos (hello delicious) and whisked away to check in and shortly after brought to our home away from home for the next few days. Our HUGE room was located in the Towers section of the resort. This area has rooms with private balconies and access to a VIP lounge (basically an area of added luxury).  Our room was the perfect oasis for two fashion bloggers with a lot of clothing. We each had tons of room to spread out and plenty of closet space. 

We especially loved the adjoining living area that gave us even more space. Also, we had a Nespresso machine for coffee every morning which was amazing and I'm now addicted and may or may not have purchased one on Amazon the moment I got home.

 The view from our balcony was something out of a magazine! 

Not only was our room incredible, but the entire property was equally as stunning. There are two beautiful pools to pick from, a swim-up bar for cocktails and endless lounge chairs and umbrellas! We rented one of the private cabanas on the beach and it was heavenly. I will mention that due to an intense tide (it's extremely dangerous), you can't actually swim in the ocean at the resort. I'm not much of an ocean swimmer, so this was definitely not a deal breaker for me.The pools are so amazing, I promise you won't miss swimming in the ocean.

You can't go on vacation and not gain 5 pounds from all of the food and drinks. The food at the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica was so good, I think i gained 10. We opted for the all inclusive plan which meant that all of our food and drinks were included with the cost of our room. If you decide to vacation here, it's the only way to go. Another great perk of opting for the all-inclusive plan is that you get to eat at any of the restaurants across all of the Pueblo Bonito properties (there are four Pueblo Bonito properties in Los Cabos and they offer free shuttle service for easy access). Torey and I visited a couple of the other properties for dinner and had amazing dining experiences at both La Frida at Pueblo Bonito Sunset beach and Steakhouse at Quivara Golf Club. The margaritas were out of this world at La Frida and you HAVE to order the cheesecake at the steakhouse! We also loved the restaurants on property and both agreed that the food was delicious. I've been to all inclusive resorts before where the food was average but everything at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica was delicious.

Torey and I each enjoyed an amazing 50 minute Swedish massage at the Spa and couldn't have been more relaxed. The whole spa experience was incredible and they took wonderful care of us. Also, if you are into working out on vacation, the fitness center at the resort is HUGE and one of the best i'eve ever seen.

I was truly blow away by the staff at the resort! Every single employee went out of their way to ensure that Torey and I had the best trip. Torey left her wallet in the cab on the way to the resort and the kind staff members worked immediately to have it returned to her. I will also (begrdugingly) mention that we locked ourselves out of our room on three different occasions. Each time, a friendly staff member would let us into our room with a smile!

We even had butler service 24hrs a day during our stay. Alexis, our butler who immediately became our friend, took INCREDIBLE care of Torey and I. He scheduled our shuttles, booked us an excursion (i'll get into that below) and even made our dinner reservations for us.

I wanted to go into a little more detail about our excursion because it was seriously one of the coolest experiences of my life. We took a quick 15 minute cab ride from the resort (arranged by our amazing butler) and hopped on a $10 boat ride to see the arch. If you don't know, the arch is a distinctive rock at the Southern most point of Cabo San Luca. What we thought was going to be an ordinary boat ride quickly turned into something magical. Towards the end of our tour, we spotted a school (probably close to 500) dolphins jumping in and out of the water and proceeded to chase them around for the next 30 minutes. It was seriously INSANE and one f the coolest things i've ever seen. I would say it was deifinitely worth the $10!

Overall, we had an incredible stay at the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica. It was relaxing, indulgent, sunny and everything you could ever wish for in a vacation. If you are looking for a beautiful, adults only all-inclusive vacation, look no further than Pueblo Bonito Pacifica. You will be treated to the best vacation ever!

C/MEO COLLECTIVE IN CABO

WHITE DRESS: C/MEO COLLECTIVE | BOW SANDALS: KAANAS (C/O) | CLUTCH: FROM ST. XAVIER (C/O)HOOP EARRINGS: KENDA KIST JEWELRY

In the spirit of wearing Australian brands, have I mentioned i'm going to Australia in THREE weeks. Just slightly freaking out over here. Partly due to excitement, and mostly due to frantic stress because there's so much to do and so little time. 

Bringing it back to my trip to Cabo (just last week and I promise the full recap is coming soon) where I wore this AHHHHHMAZING C/Meo Collective dress. Ok, I sadly can't take credit for finding this beauty. I may or may not have seen Kourtney Kardashian wearing it and added it to my cart immediately (i'll never tell). Regardless if a Kardashian wore it or not, I am in love. It's the perfect little white dress with some added edge (just what I always look for in an outfit) and can we please talk about the gorgeous sleeves. The ruched detailing, subtle bell sleeves and simple tie= absolute perfection. I'm serious when I say I haven't loved a dress this much in a long time.

BEACH DAYS

BLUE PRINTED KAFTAN: COOPER AND ELLA (C/O) | ONE PIECE: EVERYTHING BUT WATER (C/O) | STRAW HAT: FREE PEOPLE | STRAW BAG: FREE PEOPLE (SOLD OUT BUT SIMILAR HERE)

It's the middle of August, and I finally got to have a real Summer beach day in Mexico! Torey and I woke up early on our first day to get that perfect morning light and set off for the beach. I didn't know this before I arrived, but there are a lot of places in Cabo where you can't even go into the water. Evidently the currents are really strong and there's a huge drop off just a few feet from shore. I was totally fine with this and enjoyed walking in the sand and hanging out in our private cabana for the day!

I wore this fun printed kaftan from Cooper & Ella. Did you see Friday's post where I featured another one of their gorgeous pieces? This kaftan was the perfect thing to throw over my Marysia one-piece from Everything But Water. Everything But Water has the best selection of amazing swimwear featuring all of my favorite brands. This one piece is gorgeous, comfortable, and I love the scalloped hemline and the rich navy color. It's definitely a suit I will reach for year after year and one i'm so thrilled to have in my collection (does anyone else collect swimsuits?).

LADY IN RED: CABO STYLE

ONE SHOULDER TOP: COOPER & ELLA (C/O) | BLACK DENIM: TOPSHOP | STRAW HAT: FREE PEOPLE | BOW SANDALS: KAANAS (C/O) | BAG: CHLOE | STATEMENT EARRINGS: BAUBLEBAR (C/O AND ONLY $36)

Just got back from the most AHMAZING four days in Cabo San Lucas with one of my Favorite girls in the entire world (Torey), but more on her and more on the trip later. First up, I wanted to share this look from the trip. Cooper & Ella is a new-to-me brand that I'm trying to figure out how I haven't been wearing for years. I love EVERYTHING that they make and this red top might top the list.

The one shoulder ruffle detail and the gorgeous floral print in the rich colors make it perfect to wear now or later as we get closer to Fall. I decided to make my look a little edgier by adding statement earrings (these are so fun and affordable), a giant straw hatbasic black denim and these adorable bow sandals. I LOVE the way the look came together and it's definitely something you could easily re-create. It's the perfect look for vacation but the top could easily be styled for everyday wear.
